Love and Grumpiness, or, the Pre-Christmas Spirit – with fine poem wot I wrote.


Original YT playout date: 30 January 2010

“Twas the week before Christmas, and all round the town
Uncle Davey found things that were making him frown
The carp were all stuffed in a tank full of piss
Thinking “even the frying pan’s better than this”
With soap suds and fungus – a piteous sight!
(But I show the way to keep catfish aright)
With incomplete sets and confusing intentions
The products for children’s gifts needed a mention
Just one dwarf per set, while the picture showed seven
May these toy makers get their reward in heaven!
No Happy, No Sneezy, Ach, Donner und Blitzen
Das ganze Ding war nur ein Krock von Schitzen
Thought up by some in-Doc-trinated numpty
To catch out the Dopey, but make the rest Grumpy!
Just boxes of cons were the toys on store shelves
While the queues for a tire change were tiring themselves
With temperatures minus fourteen, and the rest
You wouldn’t want to be out improperly dressed.
Fine folk of goodwill bearing Dortmund plates
Parked up for a while in the invalid space
No badge they did show, and the mother jumped out
Like a sprite, disability strongly in doubt
So they got named and shamed and blamed and inflamed
But let us just pray that they do not get lamed.
For the real needy not one ounce of consideration
But no balls to get out and make confrontation!
But I heard her exclaim as I strolled out of sight
“You can’t film me, man, for I know my rights.”

See a huge maneating shark turn into a little pet in the reception of a Prague hotel. Learn about the Christmas outdoor sausage shops, the stuffet chop in Hybernia restaurant and some of the funny features of Prague’s airport.

Huliganov’s England – 4/4 “Germy Claxon werry bed men!”


Original YT playout date: 21 January 2010
Duration: 10:24

Huliganov negotiates the underground railway on London, but comes face to face with none other that “Germy Claxon” himself! Or at least a poster thereof, advertising his latest bilious att-hacks. Huliganov is putting up with none of the nonsense this atrocious human being writes, and shows that even from his face you can tell that he is a no-good style character.

Huliganov’s England – 3/4 “The Man on the Clapham Omnibus”


Original YT playout date: 18 January 2010
Duration: 14:21

What the man on the Clapham omnibus might think of something was always as much a beloved benchmark of desired behaviour/legal decisions in English law as the famous WWJD is to believing people in America. However, the man on the Clapham omnibus is merely a fictional character, as Huliganov discovers. When he finally sees a Clapham omnibus – he’s in for a big shock, which shakes to the core his faith in the English legal system…

Huliganov’s England – 1/4 “Ghost Town”


Original YT playout date: 17 January 2010
Duration: 13:14

We fly from Warsaw Chopinmall Airport to so-called “London” Luton, (don’t be fooled, it’s nowhere near London) and then go on to Hemel Hempstead to do a spot of Christmas shopping, and get a few special offers. One offering by the Specials in the 1970s talked about “this town is coming like a ghost town” – they could really have been singing about Hemel Hemsptead a quarter of a century later – all the old lovely things like the Pavilion and the old market, and the nativity crib all gone, and replaced with stupid tableaux of fluffy toys being attacked by wolves and nonsense like that! Quite frankly the way things are going, the town is lucky to have a Christmas tree. By the way, please note that even after all these years, I sang that song at exactly the right pitch – as the video proves. I didn’t autotune it. If you think that’s easy, you try it! Could always have been a fluke, of course…

Belgian Conga


Belgian Chamber, Christine Avgustaki, Belvedere Restaurant, Warsaw,

Original YT playout date: 17 January 2010
Duration: 10:03

“Well, they didn’t exactly conga, not by the time I left, anyway. It was the day after Hermann van Rompuy was named by the powers that be, (by which of course, I don’t mean the democratic electorate, as we did not get a vote on it, but as yet we’re still allowed to comment that, so I am) and the Belgian community abroad were so delighted by this that they invited all their friends to a slap up meal and a concert by one of their stars, in the most expensive restaurant in every capital city, to celebrate. We got Christine Avgustaki, for Warsaw, and the Belvedere restaurant. I hear that we had tried to get Jacques Brel for Poland, as he has many fans here, but that he was otherwise engaged.

Many thanks to Belgium for this, we all had a wonderful time, and I only left early as it was already past midnight, and anyway I never trained to dance, so I dance like a train.”

Varvara Krasa Dlinnaya Kosa – Barbara the Fair


Original YT playout date: 16 January 2010
Duration: 1:20:25

Huliganov TV has been able to get hold of a full version of this Soviet children’s movie for your enjoyment. Directed in 1969 by Alexandr Rou, this production of the Russian Story of “”Barbara the Fair with Silky Hair”” stars Mikhail Pugovkin as King Jeremy, Anastacia Zuyeva as the Narrator Lady, Georgiy Millar as King Chudo-Yudo, and Tatiana Klyuyeva as the eponymous Barbara.

The story is a traditional style fairytale, with King Jeremy kidnapped by the underwater kind Chudo-Yudo while making a census of his lands, and agreeing unwisely to a ransome demanded for his release…

Sunset with migrating starlings and the beginnings of a tornado


Original YT playout date: 16 January 2010
Duration: 5:49

This interesting sky was filmed on my drive home last year one November evening. The song is a composition of mine which doesn’t have words yet, but I am thinking about plum trees with white blossom on, seen across the plain of a river in spring flood. If anyone wants to turn that into a lyric, be my guest. After that we have a fairly random scene where Sophie starts to do one of her extemporaneous “stories” while we are waiting for our takeaway to be ready. I’m not sure that what you see in the sky is really the beginning of a tornado, but at first glance it sort of looked like one. Not sure how else something like that would be there just on its own like that …
